.n.f. this treaty between the united states and russia places limits on ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with ranges between 500 and 5,500 kilometers. the united states has held up our agreement in the treaty. it appears the russians have not. according to press reports, it appears the russians have tested a ground launch cruise missile from an operational launcher. the russians have responded, this is a sea-based missile which does not fall under the treaty. there's no way to know if it's a sea-based missile until it's deployed but even so, if it was a sea-based missile and the russians tested on land using an operational launcher, it's in violation of the treaty. either way the russians are violating this treaty. according to press reports, the administration knew about the violation back in 2008. six years later the state department says, the violation is still under review and is not officially classified as a violation or not. time for the state department to pick a horse and ride it. either it's a violation or it's not a violation. i've introduced h.con.res. 94 with repres
to report that russia could potentially withdraw from treaties such as the i.n.f. and that they may further -- any further expansion of arms control efforts will likely make no headway for the foreseeable future system of, some of my colleagues, some of the pun -- i hear some pundits saying, give weapons, more sanctions, very few people are talking about diplomatic solutions. my first question is, do either of you still see, i believe there's still hope, we should talk and have conversations with nations we don't disagree with. is diplomacy an option here? do you seedy employee macy having an a chance here? or it has no chance? what role do you think diplomacy has in this. >> thank you, sir. we -- we believe that diplomacy is a critical aspect of of this. that's why secretary kerry has had, i forget, six, eight, 10 conversations with the russian foreign minister over the last couple of weeks. that's why he went to geneva to negotiate the terms of the geneva statement that laid out a pathway for de-escalation and so we very much believe that the -- that that is the -- that diplomacy is the w
that the type of sanctions that would work versus russia might be the same. those dealing with the more specifically with the energy sector and the banking sector. have those been considered are is this an issue with the european union? >> congressman they've been considered because the president signed an executive order that creates the authority for us to designate sectors should we make the determination that that's the appropriate step. i think that if you look -- >> this would have been stronger. >> if you look at the impact on russia's economy, it's a little misleading to look at what happens day by day. you have to look over the period of time since russia went into crimea. since we imposed sanctions. there has been quite a substantial deterioration in russia's already-weak economy. we see it in their stock exchange, their exchange rate, in a number of important economic indicators. they were down graded one notch above junk. with the rationale and bond rating was, in part, the sanctions being imposed. i think the question here is how do we proceed in a careful way, step by step
to supplant the rest of the world and doing so in a big way as well as building up their own military. russia is a powerful force in the world which we need to deal with as a major country, a major nation. major countries have their interests. i do not see what's going on in outcome of the communist ideology but instead you have a very important international power there, russia, that is governed by someone who is looking out for its national interests and who that leadership of that country obviously believes that what was going on in ukraine was contrary to their national interests and that they were not being treated fairly in a way in which a pro-russian leader was removed from office by street violence rather than by elections, which in their o result losing -- what they had was access to crimea and a port for their fleet. that said, i'd like to go back to the original purpose that we came here today, to talk about arms control and how that will inimpacted by this new shift our relations with russia and i say that no matter what i should have said the bottom line is, it is in recognitio
is allowing drillers to get at these previously unaccessible reserves. >> the u.s. just passed russia as number two. we are going to pass saudi arabia, we are going to be number one. >> there's so much interest in more domestic production, so many more jobs are being created. i think they've run out of workers. i'm not even sure we can build their roads fast enough to help us get this production under way. it is revitalizing the manufacturing base of america. >> i'm adam scott. we're a registered investment advisor and we invest in oil and gas ships on behalf of our clients. so what are the benefits of fracking? well, it's going to save america's youth from the burden of debt built up by their parents and their grandparents. fracking and the energy industries are going to create an additional 3.5 million jobs by 2020. >> but it is not that simple. there are many real concerns of the impact on our environment and these need to be addressed. >> ♪ one day i lit a match and the water caught on fire i thought about a lawsuit then stumbled upon the fact that fracking is exempted from the
to those that were polled by "usa today" that said sanction russia but don't arm ukraine, that is what they found out in this poll. >> guest: i disagree. sanctions i don't believe are ever going to work because we'll never have a unified regime of sanctions that are going to have enough teeth where it doesn't hurt western interests as bad. and so we'll never have the types of sanctions. you need sanctions in an, in types of countries that can't bite back. sanctions work good, i think, in north korea, potentially iran. i think it's much more difficult against an economy as large as russia. again, nobody's calling for a u.s. or nato combat troops on the ground to engage, but we are talking about providing some pretty good defensive weaponry, things like antitank weapon, that type of thing, to change putin's calculus so he doesn't mass a full-fledged invasion. give the ukrainian people a chance to stabilize their government, stabilize their country. >> host: i also want to ask you about what secretary of state john kerry said about the mideast peace process. your colleague, senator ted cr

name it, and russia as well. >> and what is the, you have raised a number of point, the t and let me address them. for example, with the president's strategy, we put a deal in place to remove syria's chemical weapons, and no shots fired, and killed suspected terrorists with the drone, and hasn't there been several examples that show that this sort of policy not only can work, but does it without any crazy expense or the loss of life. >> well, in terms of the loss of life, there have been thousands of more syrians killed using chemical weapons, and so when the administration leads from behind, and allows russia the lead syria with chemical weapons, we have seen it does not work there. in terms of iran, right now, iran got exactly what they wanted, sanctions removed, relief of the sanction, and they got access to the additional $7 billion of previously frozen assets, and so far, i have not seen the kind of results that we need in the united states in terms of the nuclear armed iran. >> let me go back if we can, because you brought up the sanction, and today, the european union brought

" pieceshington post starts off by saying this. here's what the president had to say. >> typically, criticism of our foreign-policy has been directed at the failure to use military force. the question i think i would have is, why is it that everybody is so eager to use military force? after we have just gone through a decade of war at enormous troops and to our budget? exactly that these critics think would have been accomplished? my job as commander-in-chief is to deploy military force as a last resort, and to deploy it wisely. frankly, most of the foreign-policy commentator set ed our policies would go headlong into a bunch of military adventures at the american people have no interest in participating in and would not advance our core security interests. if you look at syria, for example, our interes

round of sanctions against putin in russia. it's just been woefully inadequate. >> i think he had an incredible response to that criticism which we will air as well. >> i'm sure it was incredible. i can't wait. >> i'm sure you want to bomb everybody. you complain about war and then bomb everybody. please. >> if you're going to put sanctions in place, you would hope that after you put sanctions in place, the russian stock market doesn't go up. and the ruble doesn't go up on news of the tough sanctions. but we'll talk about that later. let's talk about the nba right now. >> later today the commissioner of the nba will weigh in on the alleged racist rant by l.a. clippers owner donald sterling four days after tmz first released the tapes. several sponsors already making their judgments. suspending or reviewing their deals with the clippers. some of the top brands includes virgin america, kia, state farm, samsung. the tapes capture sterling allegedly scolding his mistress for bringing african-americans to the games and posting photos of them on her instagram account. >> look at those t
